Top 15 Cool and Unique Hotels in London (tried and tested)

London is an eclectic mix of true originality, quirkiness, and English eccentricity. I’ve called the city my home for many years now, giving me plenty of time to scout out some of the most unique places to stay…I may be a little biased but I honestly think some of the hotels here are seriously spectacular! From large and modern to intimate boutiques, here are my favorite cool and unique hotels that reflect the city’s taste for the extraordinary and the impeccably designed…

Treehouse Hotel

Chic-boutique-hotel-in-London Boutique-in-London Unique-hotel-in-London

Yes this is really a hotel inspired by a treehouse, but I really love how the finished product is seriously unique and stylish – this extraordinary 4-star gem with eye-catching and strikingly beautiful decor is most definitely wow-inducing and charmed me as soon as I walked through the door! I’m a big fan of the intriguing collection of cleverly recycled objects, handmade details, lashings of gorgeous greenery, and the elegant but playful atmosphere. 

Throw in 95 guest rooms with a quirky-chic design (complete with cute stuffed toys!) rainfall showers and Nespresso machines, 12 beautiful suites, an upscale Mexican restaurant, a fashionable cafe/wine bar, and a penthouse restaurant. I would definitely recommend heading to the stunning 16th-floor rooftop lounge which offers seriously stunning 360-degree skyline views including the London Eye, The Shard and Canary Wharf, this was my favourite stand-out feature! 

I equally loved the location just off historic Regent Street at Langham Place in chic, upscale, and very-sought-after Marylebone, close to the BBC Headquarters and within easy walking distance to the shopping haven Oxford Steet – and equally as leafy – Regent’s Park.

nHow Hotel

Themed-hotel-in-London Fun-hotel-in-London Instagrammable-hotel-in-London

This place is more of a very cool concept than a hotel, the 4-star exceptionally rated nHow Hotel started its well-received hotel chain in Berlin and quickly branched out into other major European cities. It’s located within a short distance of some of London’s most creative areas (just a 10-minute walk from Angel Islington, Clerkenwell, and Old Street). 

On my visit I decided that it sums up the city itself – it’s a hip and happening creative haven, with lashings of colour, and a very unique and Instagrammable design but with an edge too! This inspirational ‘lifestyle’ hotel wants you to experience music, art, fashion, and architecture all rolled into one! 

It’s a large hotel with 190 rooms and the vibe is laid back but the design is very eye-catching. I was a big fan of the trendy, high-end style mixed with graffiti-style art and spacious (for this city anyway), funky rooms complete with mod cons such as flat-screen TVs. In upgraded rooms, you’ll also find espresso machines. Other stand-out features include an on-site restaurant serving meat-free options and a great breakfast, a zen-like garden, a stylish bar, and an onsite gym. I’d definitely recommend taking advantage of the bike loans they have on offer so you can explore the city!

Mama Shelter

trendy-hotel-in-London hip-new-hotel-in-London

The fun, quirky, and thriving Mama Shelter brand began its life in Paris, it then quickly spread its wings internationally due to its huge popularity. It’s located in the popular hipster hub (and my favourite part of town) Shoreditch and this trendy, highly rated 4-star London hotel has quickly become one of the best unique accommodation options in the capital.

I love that it’s creative, funky, and friendly but also – bonus – affordable too! On my visit I found lashings of colour, plenty of kitsch eye-catching patterns and textiles, and quirky tongue-in-cheek details such as a chalkboard ceiling (loved this!), metal dog sculptures, bejewelled Darth Vader masks, and retro arcade machines.

It’s also located near lots of hipster-friendly cafes, pubs, and shops and just 4 minutes away from an underground tube station. The trendy rooms feature complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, and minifridges and there’s also a hip onsite restaurant, a strikingly gorgeous – and fun – garden bar, and even Japanese-style karaoke rooms! If you’re a beer fan I’d definitely recommend trying their very own blond ale beer and hot espelette pepper which are delicious! Come to Mama, I promise you won’t regret it!

The Exhibitionist Hotel

Cool-hotel-London-960x500_c arty-hotel-London-960x500_c

Set in a row of handsomely restored 18th-century townhouses, this is an ultra-hip and exceptionally rated 5-star boutique hotel that has an exquisite and luxurious design but is uniquely filled with an Aladdin’s cave of striking contemporary art pieces.

I found it to be like a communal art gallery of sorts, home to a mix of rotating installations as well as set pieces of art. I loved the gigantic marble bull guarding the door and an imposing mannequin/lamp residing in the bar! It’s located in the upscale central location of the stylish shopping haven Kensington (only a 4-minute walk from South Kensington tube station and a 6-minute walk from the Victoria and Albert Museum and opposite the Natural History Museum). 

Other amenities include flat-screen TVs, iPads, and free Wi-Fi, elegantly styled bathrooms with underfloor heating and rainfall showers, a swish onsite restaurant, a fashionable bar, and a (non-exhibitionist!) spa. If you can afford I would highly recommend booking a penthouse suite as you either get your own patio or jacuzzi!

Hip-hotel-in-London-960x500_c Unique-and-modern-hotel-in-London-960x500_c

Eco-friendly, high-tech, and ultra-modern, with a strong Japanese influence, I’m a big fan of this futuristic and highly rated 4-star trendy hotel. It’s located in the creative and buzzy sought-after Clerkenwell neighbourhood filled with great bars and restaurants and about a 16-minute walk from St. Paul’s Cathedral.

In this version of the hugely successful chain, there are 212 minimalist ‘cabins’ or larger guest rooms which feature innovative technology, their signature SmartBed™, Wi-Fi, smart HDTVs, rainfall showers and a clean, chic white design. Some rooms offer seriously gorgeous city views and added seating areas too. I’d recommend families book the Premium Triple room for the extra space and beds. 

Also on site, I found the Komyuniti a hip but laid-back bar and restaurant which serves up street food-inspired cuisines as well as cocktails and craft beers, a funky co-working space, and a 24-hour gym. Breakfast is also available onsite.  Alternatively, you can opt for the newly opened Yotel Shoreditch which is located in one of the city’s most hipster-friendly spots – so quite a choice!

hip-new-hotel-in-London-1-960x500_c Retrocool-hotels-in-London-960x500_c newly-opened-cool-hotel-in-London--960x500_c

I’m a big fan of this cool hotel with impeccable credentials (the same hotelier who founded the Chiltern Firehouse and Chateau Marmont) and where the bold and beautiful flock to in droves!  The exceptionally rated 5-star hotel is located in the increasingly gentrified and lively Kings Cross area just 10 minutes from Central St.Martins. 

Inside I found this place to be a dream, a fun, striking, and Instagrammable kind of dream. There’s a funky retro-inspired design, rooftop open-air baths (yes really!), a library, a trendy sound studio that hosts regular live music, and a 24-hour gym. I’d definitely recommend trying my favourite feature which was a windowless “deep listening” room for rejuvenating during the day! 

The guest rooms feature Bang & Olufsen Bluetooth speakers, their own outdoor bathtubs, and minifridges containing vegan protein balls and truffle crisps – small details count! Other amenities include casual eats and beer in the onsite bar, small-sharing plates at Isla, and the Michelin-starred delights on the trendy top-floor restaurant overseen by top chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias.

Best For Unique Stay


Modern-new-hotel-in-London-960x500_c Sunborn-Yacht-Hotel-London-960x500_c Sunborn-Yacht-Hotel-960x500_c

This is my favourite spot for a classy, unique and elegant city stay. Moored in the Docklands it’s located across from the ExCel London convention centre and connected to the city centre via the Docklands Light Railway and a 20-minute train ride (and is also close to the O2 Centre and Canary Wharf).

High-tech and high-spec, the Sunborn has luxurious interiors with an elegant and nostalgic Art Deco feel – think shiny brass railings, lashings of teak, a showy spiral staircase, and sparkling chandeliers. Classic rooms/cabins can be very spacious and feature en-suite bathrooms, flat-screen TVs Wi-Fi, touch-pad room controls, air conditioning, and my favourite – the cute pot-holes! 

There’s also a sleek bar, a modern-day spa, and prices start from only £100 a night, so not bad at all! The views from the deck are worth a stay in itself and its peaceful location while still being very accessible to the city centre was also another bonus for me! Before leaving I’d suggest having a signature cocktail (or mocktail) in the Sundown Bar, the views are night are very romantic!

Sea Containers

Most-Instagrammable-hotels-in-London-960x500_c Sea-Containers-London-960x500_c

This gorgeous upscale hotel located on the River Thames is a true Instagrammer’s dream! The 5-star exceptionally rated Sea Containers Hotel is an ultra-chic and very large design hotel located in a privileged position in the vibrant South Bank district just a short walk from the Tate Modern and overlooking the River Thames.

On my visit, I fell for its unique design inspired by the decor of 1920s transatlantic liners but with a modern twist. The cruise ship-inspired hotel also has 359 modern guest rooms which feature custom furnishings and original art. It’s a special spot with a hip, buzzy vibe and filled with well-dressed fashionable types – this is the place to hang out and be seen! 

In-room amenities include flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi, plus rainfall showers. Opt for an upgrade then rooms feature patios and/or gorgeous river views. I’d strongly suggest booking the superior room if available as then you get wonderful views of the city skyline.

My personal highlights include a glamorous spa, a high-tech 24-hour gym, a cinema room, upscale dining options, an onsite cocktail bar, outdoor seating, and a rooftop lounge with spectacular river views and DJs at the weekend.

Best For Hipster

The Hoxton Hotel

Londons-coolest-hotels-960x500_c Londons-hippest-hotels-960x500_c

With a funky urban lodge style – think open fireplaces, classic leather furniture, squashy sofas, exposed brickwork, and a buzzy atmosphere, I love that this place epitomises the urban cool of Hoxton/Shoreditch itself (a hip neighbourhood area of the city only a short tube or bus ride from the city centre) but with surprisingly competitive prices.

The ethos here is simple: the rooms are a base from which to either work or play and are stylish, intentionally fuss-free – but always with a playful eye for details. Design and vibe here are very important. My room, for example, had sleek dark walls, striking retro-style herringbone wood floors, a well-stocked minibar, and a lush rainfall shower.

Some of the rooms are less spacious so opt for these if you just require a funky base rather than a leisurely stay. All the rooms have the option of breakfast being delivered to your door every morning. 

I personally loved that this hotel doubles as a social hub in Shoreditch for either remote workers or trendy bar-seekers with all the goings-on centred around the cosy lobby and the popular on-site Hoxton Grill also located on the ground floor. If you’re staying for a while I’d recommend heading to the co-working space in the lobby as it’s very easy to meet other travellers.

NYX Hotel Holborn by Leonardo

Retro-styled-hotel-in-London-960x500_c Cool-spa-hotel-London-960x500_c NYX-hotel-London-960x500_c

This is a new design hotel, with vibrant, creative, and chic styling and a great central location in Holborn just a 10-minute walk from Oxford Street, trendy Soho, and Covent Garden. As well as an exceptional location I found it to be filled with lashings of color, fun, and pop art. Think bright quirky art, neon signs, panes of glass in all colors of the rainbow, and retro-modern furniture galore! 

The funky rooms – which come in a range of different sizes – feature funky and unique decor, teak floors, trendy Smeg fridges, floor-to-ceiling windows, eco-friendly toiletries, Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs. Upgraded rooms also have plush sofas in separate sitting areas.

My favorite hotel highlights include a trendy rooftop bar complete with fabulous views, the tequila and craft cocktails, two modern restaurants one of which has a DJ booth, a relaxing lounge offering afternoon tea. I would definitely recommend trying the spa before you leave, it’s a sublime art-adorned spot complete with a large swimming pool, and a modern gym.

Zedwell Piccadilly

Cool-and-unique-hotel-in-London-960x500_c Trendy-and-hip-hotel-in-London-960x500_c

This beautiful, unique, new, and ultra-trendy centrally located hotel provides a holistic, zen-like experience. The superb central location is just off Shaftesbury Avenue in the centre of the West End, near all the theatres, popular restaurants, entertainment galore, and Covent Garden too.

I’m a big fan. This place really is something quite different and the decor emphasizes natural materials and is geared towards sustainability.  The 700 unique minimalist rooms are known as – and feel just like – “cocoons” and are soundproofed and air-purified too! The lack of distractions like TVs, electronics, and windows ensured I experienced a very different stay away from the norm. 

Other highlights include a holistic studio, a modern gym, and the Lounge which serves natural and nourishing food and drink, its reasonable price, and its sumptuous mattresses. I’d definitely recommend booking a personal training, yoga or pilates session as this is not something you can get in every hotel!

The Good Hotel

Good by name, good by nature. I love this innovative, affordable, and ultra-trendy 4-star highly-rated floating hotel.  Moored at Royal Victoria Dock outside the Good Hotel is a striking sight, it looks like a giant floating black shipping container (but one with an astroturfed roof!). 

Inside it has sleek and trendy industrial chic decor and quirky details, a design world away from its neighbouring average-looking chain hotels. Their staff are former unemployed locals and they aim to train 15 new people every three months.

The communal areas are open-planned and relaxed and draw in hip-looking overnight guests, remote workers and locals, the guest rooms are cute and cosy with a trendy design and river views through a small square window. Its location is a 6-minute walk to the nearest station, it’s not centrally located but the Royal Victoria light rail station will connect you to all the city centre attractions via a 20-minute train ride. 

Before leaving I’d suggest heading up to the wonderful rooftop terrace which comes complete with a lush lawn and having a drink in the sociable bar there, the water views are gorgeous! Overall it’s definitely a very Good/great all-rounder!

H10 Waterloo

H10-London-Waterloo-960x500_c Trendy-hotel-in-London-960x500_c (1)This cool spot is housed in a unique asymmetric high-rise building located on the highly popular South Bank area just south of Waterloo Station alongside the River Thames and not far from the Tate Modern, The London Eye, Big Ben, and Tower Bridge

As well as the superb riverside location, I loved the stylish and unique modern design which comes beautifully accented with some chic quintessentially English design details including art murals. 

The light and bright stylish guest rooms – which come in a variety of sizes – at H10 London Waterloo are equally as impressive with floor-to-ceiling windows offering superb city views (my favorite part and it really sets this hotel apart), iPods docks, tech-friendly flat-screen TVs with USB ports, minibars, and free WiFi. 

My other highlights included a spa with a beauty centre, a fitness room, a sauna, and a chic lobby bar. Although my favourite was the very trendy roof terrace complete with an upscale restaurant which I’d definitely recommend visiting before you leave. It’s perfect for sipping on cocktails and watching a hazy sunset over the British capital!

The Pilgrm

trendy-central-hotel-London-960x500_c hip-central-hotel-London-960x500_c cool-central-hotel-London-960x500_c

This is a gorgeous, cute, and personal boutique-style hotel in a fabulous central location. If you’re not a fan of huge impersonal hotels then The Pilgrim Hotel is most definitely the antidote! It’s located in a Victorian building, in charming Paddington very near restaurants, cafes, and Paddington underground tube station which will quickly take you to Regents Park, Marylebone, Oxford Circus, and Hyde Park.

The 4-star hotel offers exceptional value but still with a touch of luxury, which is actually quite a tall order in the city! The stylish boutique-style pet-friendly rooms are chic and although some are very compact they offer a home-away-from-home oasis in an otherwise bustling area. Upgraded rooms offer city views and flat-screen TVs.

I also loved the sociable and friendly vibe, the fantastic breakfasts (I’d suggest trying their incredible French Toast which comes dripping with Nutella and honey), the original art, the free loaner bikes, the onsite plush lounge bar servicing craft cocktails, freshly pulped juices, organic coffee, and international cuisine, and the cute cafe with trendy exposed stone walls, quirky details and wood furnishings.

AMANO Covent Garden

Sleek-and-sexy-hotel-in-London-960x500_c London-hotel-with-rooftop-bar-960x500_c

This place is located close to some of the best theatres, boutiques, restaurants, and pubs in the city, in the eternally popular central location of Covent Garden. It has the feel of a trendy European hotel, it certainly is very different from most other hotels in the city anyway. The style and design here are ultra-modern with clean lines, a signature grey and gold color palette and unique details.

Then we get to the views. The views are just outstanding and really sets this 4-star exceptionally rated hotel apart from rivals. The guest rooms – which come in a menu of quirkily named shapes and sizes – are just as impressive and my room featured wall-to-ceiling windows and a freestanding golden bathtub. 

Other rooms are Cozy, Comfy, and Roomy. Many rooms have garden views and they all have mobile keys and tablets complete with a handy phone function. There’s also an innovative onsite Israeli-Spanish restaurant. Breakfast is particularly tasty and includes buffet, à la carte, and continental options.

Although my favorite was the Skybar located on the 7th floor with its open terrace and panoramic city views. I’d also recommend heading to the basement for cocktails, music, and dancing the night away for a very unique experience! 


Overall I’ve been hugely impressed with the hotels in London, so much that it was actually really tough to narrow them down to this list. Some of my personal favourite include The Treehouse Hotel for its truly unique decor, The Standard for its cool party vibe, and the Pilgrim Hotel for its friendly and intimate atmosphere. I’d also personally suggest you book as far in advance as you can for the hotels as London can get very busy and some of the rooms in the most popular hotels go very quickly. Enjoy!

Where do tourists usually stay in the UK capital?

Tourists usually like to stay somewhere centrally located in the city, especially if they want to tick off all the main attractions such as the London Eye, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and the River Thames.

Popular locations include the West End, Soho, and Covent Garden for their buzzy vibe, theatres, street performers, and plenty of great restaurants and bars, Southbank for its gorgeous riverside location and for being home to the Tate Modern and Southbank Centre or the upscale district of Kensington for the gorgeous shopping, tree-lined streets and great museums.

Visitors also seem to love the alternative and creative hubs of Shoreditch, Hoxton, Clerkenwell and Camden. Here, you’ll find vintage stores, design shops, fabulous markets, and plenty of trendy bars and restaurants.

Where are the coolest places to stay in the city?

One of the trendiest (and edgiest) neighborhoods is Shoreditch. A popular hipster hang-out, it has a fun, creative vibe with a gritty edge and lively bars, quirky independent and vintage shops, street art, a diverse range of restaurants and popular nightclubs.

The nearby areas of Old Street, Brick Lane, and Spitalfields are equally as hip and the latter two are home to famous alternative-style markets. 

Other trendy areas include Camden, with its famous grungy market filled with street food and quirky things to buy, Hackney with its craft breweries, trendy foodie spots and vibrant nightlife, Brixton for its multicultural atmosphere and funky bars and nightclubs, charming Notting Hill with its colorful houses and Portobello Road Market, Clerkenwell for its cute and quirky shops, acclaimed eateries and design events and now the increasingly creative area of King’s Cross which now has art galleries and independent shops popping up.

How much do hotels cost in London?

The city consistently ranks as one of the most expensive cities in the world, so sadly, staying in a hotel isn’t always cheap, and some of the best accommodations in the city can get booked up fairly quickly too.

The trade-off is staying in one of the world’s best and most interesting cities! Prices start from around £100 a night for some of the lower-starred or holes with the best deals. Try to book outside peak times and in advance to get some of the best prices. 

How to get there?

Most visitors fly into Heathrow Airport and then either get the underground train (which takes around 45-60 minutes to get into the city center) or the Heathrow Express a fast train service that arrives at Paddington Station and takes around 15-20 minutes or Heathrow Connect which also arrives into Paddington but is slightly slower (but also cheaper).

  1. I’d like to visit soho hotel because it looks more comfortable, includes more services and of course is more modern.

  2. These hotels have really touched on everything that I would expect from a hotel in London. They are very sleek, yet have an air of romance and of course many of them also feature Victorian architecture. When people go to London, I am sure many of them (especially tourists) want to feel like a king or queen; and of course they can get that if they choose the right place to stay. I myself really like the Rough Luxe. It just seems sort of grungy, but also Victorian in many respects.

  3. An impressive list of places-have stayed at Hoxton and even if you can’t grab one of their £1 hotel offers you can get rooms for £29 or £59 booking in advance.

    Zetter is the other place I have stayed and reviewed-beautiful hotel with lots of nice features especially their own bottled water, bit of a miracle given how poor water quality is in London…..

    Have to bookmark your site and have a gander later…

    Hello from Kash aka @budgettraveller

  4. Wow Becky, what a fantastic post!

    I love the Hoxton Hotel and have been lucky enough to snag a £1 room again this round. Looking so forward to my stay!

    Thanks for great ideas from all around town!

    Kathryn @Travelfusion

    • Hey thanks Kathryn glad you like it! I’m impressed you managed to get a room in the Hoxton room sale. I’ve signed up now and hoping for the best!

      • Good luck to you! Our stay was this past Saturday and couldn’t have been better. It’s a great spot and it doesn’t hurt that the prices are so reasonable and the rooms so nicely decorated!

        Fingers crossed you get a room in the next round!
